UK: Lore Group will relaunch the Ace Hotel in London as One Hundred Shoreditch, a 258-room property this autumn.
The hotel will feature six restaurants and bars, including a dining venue and wine bar serving locally and sustainably sourced seafood. A rooftop bar and terrace will provide views across East London.
Five flexible meetings and events spaces can host private dining, receptions and weddings. The largest space is enclosed by floor to ceiling glass.
Design work on the property was led by Jacu Strauss, creative director at Lore Group. He commented: “The redesign reflects how Shoreditch has evolved during the last decade with the interiors mirroring the new grown-up character of the neighbourhood. In the guest rooms emphasis is placed on calm and comfort, while the restaurant and bar spaces retain the fun and energy for which this part of London is so well known.
“In the case of One Hundred Shoreditch we wanted to work with elements of the previous design, and in doing so embrace a sustainable approach by keeping some features and enhancing them to elevate the design and create a new guest experience,” Strauss added.
David Taylor, Lore Group’s chief operating officer, said: “The opening of our new hotel in Shoreditch reflects the growth and evolution that have taken place over the last 15 years in the area. We will offer something for everyone across our six restaurants and bars and 258 tranquil bedrooms, all representing consistently good value.”
One Hundred Shoreditch sits within the former Ace Hotel London Shoreditch. The Ace closed down in September 2020 as a result of the impact of Covid-19.
Lore Group is the company behind Sea Containers London, Pulitzer Amsterdam, Riggs Washington DC, and the newly opened Lyle Washington DC.
